In an unprecedented move, the Berkeley City Council is considering fully withdrawing their participation in Urban Shield. A decision in favor of pulling out of Urban Shield by the Berkeley City Council paves the way for other cities in the Bay Area to do the same. The Council has scheduled a special hearing on Urban Shield for vote on Tuesday, June 20th at 6pm at Longfellow Middle School, 1500 Derby St in Berkeley.
Date: Tuesday, June 20th. Rally at 5:30 pm, Vote at 6:00 pm
Location: Longfellow Middle School 1500 Derby St, Berkeley, CA 94703
LET’S TURN OUT STRONGER AND EVEN MORE ORGANIZED!
We want to redouble our efforts at the upcoming meeting in showing the Berkeley City Council that they need to stand on the side of the people and not on the side of militarization and oppression.
